The Cost of Childbirth is Too High

high cost of childbirth, pregnancy“Cost of Childbirth Is Too High for Individuals and Employers, Groups Say,” stated Elizabeth Palermo in the Huffington Post on July 5th, 2013.

For those of us who are proponents of Natural Childbirth, this comes as no surprise. If we women allow our Childbirth to become a medical event without our input and planning, then we are the ones who lose.

When women allow medical professionals to take over a normal natural function of the female body to turn it into a medical event we are no longer in charge of our bodies or our births. And we are contributing to the rising cost.

Why I Wrote “Natural Childbirth Exercises”

“Why did you write this book?” I was asked by a friend.

It was a shock because most of my friends are impressed, congratulatory, and mostly do not want to talk about my subject but are happy for me in my endeavor.

Why did I write this book? Why now? Why at this stage in my life? What do I have to offer pregnant women of today?

I am finished with Childbirth and even with the birth of grandchildren so why my compulsion to write this book? Not only that, but this is the second book I have written on this same topic. Why was I not satisfied with doing it just once. Why do it all over again?

Backache of Pregnancy

As your uterus grows and becomes heavier with your baby, it stretches and pulls on those ligaments that hold it in place. You allow it to hang forward which causes more stretching and now the muscles become involved and are not used to this activity. Everything begins to hurt! It is called ”backache of pregnancy”. Since we know what causes it, let’s prevent it and correct it!
